Entries in Buckingham Palace gardens (1)


The Gardens at the Royal Palace Have Gone Green. based The Telegraph reported recently that Buckingham Palace is advertising to fill the position of eco-gardener. The job description refers to keeping the grounds of the palace tidy and environmentally friendly, including recycling and composting the soiled straw from the horses’ barns. The position title is green gardener and the annual salary is 15,000 British pounds.

Take a look at the picture of the grounds, situated in the city of London, in the UK. Aren't they awesome? There are 42 acres of land, shrubs, rose beds, and herbaceous plants to maintain with sustainable, organic garden practices. Prince Charles is responsible for the royal family going green.
